Podlings don't usually use that status page as their homepage, I'd
expect cloudstack.org to redirect to
http://incubator.apache.org/cloudstack/ - the sooner the better IMO,
and in the meantime you could indicate at cloudstack.org that that
site is moving to apache.org soon.

See http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/ - assuming the CloudStack
trademark is being donated to the ASF as part of incubation, "Citrix's
forums for Apache CloudStack" is fine as that makes it clear what is
what, whereas "Cloudstack user forums" would be confusing as it lets
people believe that those forums are official ASF forums.

Another aspect is the community fragmentation, if you send people to
outside forums instead of the Cloudstack users list, you might end up
with half the community in each place.
